The Secretariat of Health announces its commitment to the global initiative Family Planning 2030 (FP2030), reflecting the strong responsibility of Honduras to promote reproductive health, gender equality, and sustainable development. The Government of the Republic of Honduras, through the Secretariat of Health, has been the first country in Latin America and the Caribbean to enter into a strategic alliance with the FP2030 Regional Centre for Latin America and the Caribbean established by the FP2030 global initiative, Save the Children and Profamilia in the region.

This commitment was made with the Honduran Health authorities, represented by Brian Erazo Muño, Sub Secretary of Regulation, María Paula Martínez, General Director of the FP2030 Regional Centre for Latin America and the Caribbean, and María Cálix, Medical Services Manager of ASHONPLAFA.

This event is an opportunity to highlight the importance of family planning in the wellbeing of our communities and the development of our country, as well as to present the concrete measures that Honduras will implement to achieve the Family Planning 2030 goals.

FP2030 is a global initiative that ensures everyone can access family planning services, information, and education. Honduras joins this mission with a commitment to take concrete steps to improve access to family planning throughout the country.

In addition, it facilitates access to a wide range of safe, modern, and effective contraceptive methods and comprehensive reproductive health services, empowering people to make informed decisions about their reproductive health and future.

The objective in Honduras is to implement and be accountable for the commitment made to FP2030, reflecting the efforts of authorities throughout the country and recognizing the continuing need for attention to the population.

Also, to prioritize individual wellbeing and universal health coverage, advance gender equality and promote the rights of women, girls, and adolescents, promote evidence-based policies, increase funding for family planning services, promote gender-sensitive regulatory frameworks, and improve the health system's responsiveness in family planning.
